Reuse Aotearoa

Ᾱmiomio Aotearoa has an MOU with Reuse Aotearoafor a research project aimed to develop a framework for measuring the impacts and outcomes of reusable packaging in the grocery sector.

The research will develop case studies with grocery retailers and producers in Wellington and the Waikato. The findings will help inform policy changes to support and grow practices at the top of the waste hierarchy, addressing a significant knowledge gap.

The project includes researchers with expertise in applying a mātauranga Māori lens to understand the impact of reusable packaging systems in the groceries sector, and explore whether increasing the diversity of retailers could help shift sustainability/circular practices more widely.
